hi I have a 4 and a half month old son who I reluctantly put on soothers when he was 2 and a half months of age as plunket nurse recommended them due to acid reflux and colic. Found it great to space feeds and to settle,Now for the last few weeks he wakes up screaming after 5 mins of going to bed as the silly thing keeps falling out,is it betta to wean them of or go cold turkey?I have a time frame of wanting them gone by the time hes 6 months.much appreciate any advice and tips and advice.
It is really up to you but if it was my little girl I would start with the day sleep/s and still give it for night and then I would take the night time away. But yes that is probaly why he keeps waking up I have found that BF was doing the same thing with my little girl, she is almost 12 months and we have weaned her off and yes it was hard becuase that would be how she fell asleep after a few days she didnt cry as much or for as long it has only been 4 days. They still cry and I have to pat her to sleep but we will get there eventually smile If you do it now there is still time for him to learn to self settle where is I left it too late.
kewl thanx yes I will be doing that tomorrow poor boy wont know whats hit him lol,I need to tho another sleepless night thanx to soothers grrrrrrrrrrrrr lol
